Bike and Build

I walked into an Arizona State credit union to close my account and walked out with a burning desire to bike ride across the United States! My bank teller just happened to be an alumnus. While waiting to complete my transaction, we got on the topic of why exercise is so important, which lead to discussing Bike and Build.
Through a nonprofit organization called Bike and Build, I will ride a bike across the country. The organization focuses on getting young kids on bikes to raise awareness for the housing crisis in the USA. I will be leaving from Virginia Beach, VA on May 25th and arriving in Cannon Beach, OR on August 6th. During this ride we will average 70 miles a day. Our route is planned around low-income housing projects through out the country, which means that every 3 days or so we get off our bikes and pick up a hammer.
To participate in this program, I have to raise at least $4,000. I am reaching out to you! The great news is that the donations are tax deductible. The proceeds from the trip will be used to fund housing projects through out the country!
This is an incredible opportunity to see the states in a unique way, and to help change peoples lives along the trip. I hope that I will have your full support on this enormous adventure.
